Following the announcement, fans expressed mixed reactions as the details on safety issues was not disclosed initially. Later, the Malaysian news sources stated that the stage base was unstable and the stage properties were heavy to handle, which increased the risk of performing there.
Twice was already at Malaysia when the announcement was made. On their way back at Kuala Lumpur airport, Once (Twice's fandom official name) gathered at the airport to send them off. Fans sang Cheer Up song and the idols were seen crying especially Dahyun and Sana, while bidding adieu. That was a very emotional moment between the artist and the fans.
Although the sudden cancellation is not a desirable news, once mostly expressed their concern and care for Twice and said "As long as Twice is safe and good, it's fine". Once had left many comforting message for the artist in social platforms, few from twitter are below.
Twice shared warm and comforting words to their fans through their Instagram account,

“You know that how you feel is how we feel too, right? We promise that the next time we meet, we’ll create happier moments and memories. To our loving Malaysian ONCEs, once again, I am so sorry and I love you. Saya sayang awak (I love you).”
